The laptop should still have an ethernet socket, somewhere around the edge. Plug the cable from the DSL into it and then setup the TCP/IP details. Also make sure that you are in the same workgroup.

get a cat-5 cable and plug that to your dsl and to the back of your laptop.

does your dsl modem come with a hub?If so then you're all set.

WOULD A WIRELESS ROOTER WORK IF I DON'T WANT TO HOOK IT UP TO THE DSL. THAT WAY I CAN GO OUTSIDE TO DO MY HOMEWORK. THANKS

as stated above, a cat 5 cable would work just fine... but for convienience sake... and for the laptops sake (because its meant to be portable) you should go buy a router... they arn't very expensive anymore...

Just hook it up to the DSL modem and you are set

a wireless router will work if it isn't hooked up to your DSL line, but the drawback is, you won't have an internet connection.

the good news is, find one of your neighbors who doesn't have security configured on their wireless router and use theirs. but then that's sorta stealing.

if you have a dsl modem all you need is cat5 wire and just plug that into your network socket on the back of your laptop
